  • Description


    I'm a new mom, my baby was born in Sept '21. The two of us live in a yurt my dad built for us, we love it there. I'm struggling to have "me time" so I'm looking for a bit of support. And at the same time looking forward to sharing about different places and people, having travelled much myself.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I'm an experienced French teacher and translator (DE/EN>FR) so all things around language (s) are my field. I'm also a psychotherapist, I use astrology and human design and love sharing about those. And obviously everything around babies and education. Whenever my dad is around, he can show you the yurt and the garden.

    I'm looking for kind and quiet people to stay and play with my little boy while I do my things. You can stay in or around the house with him or maybe go for a walk with baby carrier or pram. I'll never be far away (still breastfeeding).
    Your help with cleaning could be much welcome (our yurt is small, so cleaning is quick), as well as helping outside in the "garden" (not really a garden yet).
    I usually cook simple healthy food once or twice a day, I don't mind if you want to take over from time to time :) Baby and I eat almost everything.
    You can speak your own language with my son so he gets used to different sounds. Bonus if you know sign language.

  • Accommodation


    Our yurt is about 50 sqm, it has a kitchen, two separate sleeping areas (one below, one above - baby and I co-sleep, either upstairs or downstairs), toilets with a door and a shower without a door. So you need to be comfortable sharing a small space for a couple of days (reason why longer stays would be more difficult, except maybe if we and/or you sleep outside).
    Outside is green (fields, forest and pond), first neighbors 100m away. Not 100% silence though, since one can hear the road (depending on the wind direction).
    No WiFi but good 4G network. No TV.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    No public transportation here (but I can pick you up), the first village is 2,5 km (groceries, bakery, etc.), first train station is 8 km and the bigger town is 15 km (big shopping with everything including an airport and touristic/historic spots). A lot of green free space to walk around.
